The Hippo pathway kinase Lats2 prevents DNA damage-induced apoptosis through inhibition of the tyrosine kinase c-Abl

The Hippo pathway is an evolutionarily conserved pathway that controls cell proliferation, organ size, tissue regeneration and stem cell self-renewal. Here we show that it also regulates the DNA damage response. At high cell density, when the Hippo pathway is active, DNA damage-induced apoptosis and the activation of the tyrosine kinase c-Abl were… CONTINUE READING
